To examine: Whether the statement “Excess visceral fat and insulin resistance are shared characteristics among women with PCOS” is true or false. Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is connected with hormones related problems that are seen in some women in their childbearing years (ages 15 to 44). 2.2 to 26.7 % of women of this age are reported to have PCOS, most of them not having any relatable information about the condition. PCOS influences the ovaries, and estrogen and progesterone produced by the conceptive organs that manage the menstrual cycle. Ovulation is the release of an ovum from a mature follicle. The hormones luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) control ovulation. FSH allows the ovary to create a follicle egg present in a sac and after that the egg is triggered by the LH and then the ovary discharges a developed egg.
